During the previous twenty years, an important foreign learn attempt has been di­ rected towards figuring out the composition and law of the preocular tear movie. This attempt has been encouraged by way of the popularity that the tear movie performs a vital function in retaining corneal and conjunctival integrity, holding opposed to microbial problem, and protecting visible acuity. moreover, examine has been influenced by way of the data that alteration or deficiency of the tear movie, which happens in numerous participants through the international, could lead to desiccation of the ocular floor, ulceration and perfo­ ration of the cornea, an elevated prevalence of infectious disorder, and, possibly, seasoned­ nounced visible incapacity and blindness. to advertise additional development during this visual field examine, the second one foreign convention at the Lacrimal Gland, Tear movie and Dry Eye Syndromes: uncomplicated technology and medical Relevance used to be held on the Southampton Princess lodge in Bermuda November 16-19, 1996. This convention was once equipped and directed through David A. Sullivan, Ph. D. , codirected via Darlene A. Dartt, Ph. D. , and Michele A. Meneray, Ph. D. , and subsidized by way of the Schepens Eye study Institute (Boston, MA), an associate of Harvard clinical institution. The assembly used to be designed to evaluate severely the present wisdom and "state of the paintings" learn at the constitution and serve as of lacrimal tissue, tears, and the ocular sur­ face in either overall healthiness and disease.

The making plans and writing of this ebook has taken particularly longer than I had initially meant; what all started as a modest literary undertaking for 2 second-year clinical scholars has elevated over 8 years to turn into a whole booklet. the subject material lent itself all too simply to a sen­ sationalist process but, nevertheless, a strictly clinical method might most likely have led to a lifeless dry textual content of little curiosity to the overall reader.
